They say that true love transcends space and time...

But what if your lover is murdered, and you're given the chance to go back in time to warn his much-younger self? She agrees to go, knowing it will kill her in a matter of hours, because it gives her one last chance to be in the arms of the man she loves. 

(Unfortunately, his 20-something self doesn't believe her. In fact, he thinks she's one fry short of a Happy Meal, and he's not falling for that "lover from the future" hooey. Go figure.)

Remember how it feels to Fall in Love?

  • Race against the clock through a dystopian nightmare.
  • Climb naked into an untested time machine (carrying only a seashell and a lover's promise).
  • Wake up twenty years younger on a tropical beach, buck naked and mortally wounded, with your heart in your throat. 

This is a journey of love, loss, and redemption that will make your pulse gallop and your palms sweat, have you laughing out loud through your tears, and leave you flush with the sublime pleasure of being in love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Crossing in Time (Between Two Evils #1) by D.L. Orton I’m not much into time travel, but this book is so much more and I’m rethinking that now. The chapters are short, keeping the reading pace fast. And I enjoyed the illustrations at the beginning of each one as they connect with the events. Even the seashell in the spelling of the title on the cover has a hidden meaning.The beginning swiftly pulls you in. The plot deepens and the characters emerge. And as you draw near to the conclusion, you’re gripped in a vise of suspense that brings tears to your eyes, fearing and hoping for what comes last.
